Greenhouse Restaurant at the Cellars Hohenhort Hotel


The 45-seater restaurant “offers cutting-edge cuisine with an emphasis on local ingredients. Liveried waiters deliver duck and porcini pastille and slow-roasted crispy duck with honey ginger jus. It is an adventurous menu that doesn’t take itself too seriously.”

Greenhouse is a place where local ingredients and great African fables come together in an innovative ‘Experience’ tasting menu series that takes guests on a truly unique culinary journey. It is why we have been ranked as one of the Top 10 Restaurants in the country by the prestigious ‘Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards’ on seven occasions in the last nine years. Together with their talented team, our renowned Executive Chef Peter Tempelhoff and rising star, Head Chef Ashley Moss, look long and hard at what we eat, and where it comes from.
